Content is provided to you AS IS. You may access Content for your information and personal use solely as intended through the provided functionality of the Service and as permitted under these Terms of Use. You shall not download any Content unless you see a “download” or similar link displayed by CDD on the Service for that Content.

D. COPYRIGHT POLICY FOR CONTRIBUTORS

Copyright of your Content. CDD operates a clear copyright policy in relation to any Content alleged to infringe the copyright of a third party.

As a CCD Contributor, you may submit Content to the Service, including videos and user comments. You shall be solely responsible for your own Content and the consequences of submitting and publishing your Content on the Service.

You affirm, represent, and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to publish Content you submit; and you license to CDD all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to such Content for publication on the Service pursuant to these Terms of Use.

For clarity, you retain all of your ownership rights in your Content. However, by submitting Content to CDD, you hereby grant CDD a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, display, and perform the Content in connection with the Service and CDD (and its successors’ and affiliates’) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each user of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your Content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such Content as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under the Terms of Use. The above licenses granted by you in video Content you submit to the Service terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you remove or delete your videos from the Service.

You further agree that Content you submit to the Service will not contain third party copyrighted material, or material that is subject to other third party proprietary rights, unless you have permission from the rightful owner of the material or you are otherwise legally entitled to post the material and to grant CDD all of the license rights granted herein.

You further agree that you will not submit to the Service any Content or other material that is contrary to applicable local, national, and international laws and regulations.

Copyright infrigement. CDD does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights on the Service, and CDD will remove all Content if properly notified that such Content infringes on another’s intellectual property rights. CDD reserves the right to remove Content without prior notice.

CDD does not accept any Content which contains advertisement from YouTube as a result of copyright infrigement as described in the above paragraph or as a deliberate choice from the Contributor.

As part of CDD copyright policy, CDD will terminate Contributor’s access to the Website if a Contributor has been determined to be a repeat infringer. A repeat infringer is a Contributor who has been notified of infringing activity more than twice.

This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms of Use and your use of the Service.

E. SUBSCRIPTION FOR CONTRIBUTORS

Subscription. Streaming videos, images and text on CDD is only available to Contributors.

Subscriptions are always for a minimum 12 month period (24 month period for 4K videos produced by CDD). Prices displayed as monthly fees are only the result of a calculation mode, not as a billing mode.

Subscription period starts with the date of payment and ends 1 year (or 2 years for 4K videos produced by CDD) after that date.

Any public Content submitted will start being streamed at the time of subscription or in other communications made available to you. We reserve the right to change or terminate any offered subscriptions or promotions at any time.

Auto-renewing Subscription. Your subscription, which may start with a promotional rate, will auto-renew at the end of the cycle stated at the time of your order (“Billing Period”) unless and until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. You will not receive a notice from us that your promotional period (if applicable) has ended or that your subscription has auto-renewed.

Personal information updated. It is your responsibility to keep your primary email address up to date. You can change your primary email address by sending us an email. You agree that Electronic Communications sent to a primary email address that is incorrect, out of date, blocked by your service provider, will be deemed to have been provided to you. If an Electronic Communication is returned to us because an email to your address becomes invalid, we may deem your subscription to be inactive, and you may not be able to use the Service until we receive a valid, working primary email address from you.

F. BILLING FOR CONTRIBUTORS

Payment method. You can pay for your annual subscription with a major credit card, or by PayPal. Only credit cards, or PayPal are eligible for payment. Do not sign up for a subscription by identifying a debit card in the credit card option. A debit card may also be known as a “check” or “ATM” card and typically has the word “debit” on it. If your payment is unsuccessful by reason of insufficient funds, expiration, or otherwise, you remain responsible for any uncollected amount.

Recurring billing. By placing an order for a subscription, you authorize us to charge you the subscription fee then in effect at the beginning of each Billing Period to your Payment Method. For example, you authorize us to charge your Payment Method the promotional rate disclosed on the subscription screen in the initial Billing Period (if applicable) and the regular subscription rate in subsequent Bill Periods. We automatically bill your Payment Method on the last day of each Billing Period. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular, in the event your Payment Method has not successfully settled. If your Payment Method is declined for a recurring payment of your subscription fee, you have seven (7) days to provide us a new Payment Method or your subscription will be cancelled.

You acknowledge that the amount charged for each Billing Period may vary for reasons that may include price changes or changing your subscription, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amount each Billing Period. If paying with PayPal and the regular payments for your subscription vary in amount, we will tell you, at least ten (10) days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be; otherwise you will not be notified of upcoming charges, except as otherwise provided herein.

We reserve the right to change subscription fees for any of our subscriptions at any time. We will notify you of any changes if the regular fee for your subscription changes from what was stated at the time of your initial order. You will have an opportunity to cancel your subscription at that time. If you do not cancel your subscription, you will be charged the new subscription fee at your next Billing Period.

We will charge the subscription fee at the commencement of your subscription, and automatically on the first calendar day of each Billing Period thereafter unless and until your subscription is cancelled.

G. CANCELATIONS AND REFUNDS

Cancellations. You can cancel your subscription at any time by sending us an email. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each Billing Period to avoid billing of the next Billing Period’s subscription fees to your Payment Method. Accordingly, when you cancel, you cancel only future charges associated with your subscription, and you will not receive a refund for the current Billing Period. Your cancellation will become effective at the end of your current Billing Period, and you will continue to have access to your subscription for the balance of the Billing Period.

Refund policy. Payments are non-refundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used Billing Periods. We reserve the right, however, to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion. If we issue a refund or credit in one instance, we are under no obligation to issue the same refund or credit in the future.

Governing Law; Venue. This Agreement shall be interpreted, construed and governed according to the laws of France.

Dispute Resolution. Should any dispute arise from this contractual relationship, their parties hereby undertake to seek a friendly settlement before going to court. Should the parties not reach a friendly settlement, they hereby agree to submit their actions to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Paris, France.
